OAβ test can be used for the early detection of Alzheimer’s Disease from a small blood sample.
Alzheimer’s Disease (“AD”) is perhaps the most significant neurodegenerative disease which accounts for roughly 70% of what is commonly referred to as dementia.
It is brought on gradually and progressively worsens. In 2015, there was a new dementia diagnosis every 3 seconds. In 2015, it is believed that a total of 150 million people will have dementia. Dementia, including AD, is #5 on the WHO list of “Top 10 Causes of Death,” and brings a tragic ending to so many individuals annually.
Due to the fact that there has still yet to be a cure for AD, and that lost cognitive function cannot be restored, the best way to manage AD is the delay of its onset through early diagnosis followed by preemptive care.
Beta-amyloid is known to be the main player in the pathology of AD. Proteins, such as beta-amyloid, that exist within the human body, can form aggregate compounds called oligomers. Beta-amyloid oligomers ultimately form insoluble amyloid plaque, which eventually causes brain damage, followed by AD.
OAβ Test from PeopleBio is the only blood test currently available that can measure the oligomerization levels of beta-amyloid, the biomarker of AD, prior to the onset of symptoms. The key difference between OAβ Test and other tests available on the market is that OAβ can selectively detect beta-amyloid oligomers.
OAβ Test Automated System is an automated machine for measuring the oligomerization levels of beta-amyloid in individuals suspected of having AD.
